TinyMCE toolbar position

Go to End

I have a mild concern with the position of the TinyMCE toolbar. There is a significant separation between the toolbar and the textarea that is being actioned and I am concerned that this creates a usability issue.

Additionally the toolbar appears on pages where it's features are not applicable. This may cause cognitive overload on users and, possibly worse, may serve to make the toolbar vanish into the change blindness hole and make it harder for users to notice it when it is actually necessary.

Is there a way to move the toolbar to be more closely associated with the textarea that is being edited? Also, is there a way to ensure that the toolbar does not appear on pages where it is not necessary?

Thanks for any help
